Community Career Advising Workshop

Feeling unsure about your next career move (or where to start)? UBC Okanagan Career Advising has the solution.

Let the UBC Okanagan career experts guide you through the most respected and widely used career planning instrument in the world. The Strong Interest Inventory links your interests and preferences to various career options-- regardless of how new you are to the workplace or long you've been away from school.  Workshop attendees will receive a comprehensive report reflecting your style and which academic programs could be a great fit! 

Snacks and beverages will be served.

Who is this for?

These workshops are helpful for any community member looking for career clarity, no matter how long you’ve been away from school at any level. You could be a working person considering a change, or a student ready to graduate from high school.

High School Students are encouraged but not required to bring a parent.

If you are a student currently in or recently graduated from School District 23, please revisit your planning results from myBlueprint online education planner & bring to the workshop.

High school students must be in Grade 11 or higher at the time of the workshop.
